Neat game! It's a bit slow to have to lead shapes and push them into the correct holes. Cool idea though, fun game.

Great audio! The game has a cool concept. I think it would be better to add some "grab" mechanic rather than pushing, but I like the idea.

Great game. I wonder, when I got out it said I saved 0 out of 1x. (it looks like there is a second digit but it is cut off) Is it possible to switch which shape you control. Also why was 0 saved? Did I got burnt by fire, but still made it out?

Really nice take on a game I've now played a lot of versions of. As a result it was refreshing and fun. Good work

this was awesome! Its somewhat slow to push the other objects around though. Music was really great!

I liked the concept, but I felt that the controls were a bit awkward, with regards to the rotation of the camera also rotating the objects. Perhaps rotating the objects could have been bound to another key/button, maybe like a click and drag right mouse button?

Many thanks for the positive and constructive feedback!

The controls, screen support and winning condition does need some serious fine-tuning!

Click and drag for rotation is a really good idea, since that would cope well with the current design, we had not though of that, thanks!

Nice game! The only weak spot was the controls but everything was well put together and pretty impressive! Good job!

Interesting idea, but the controls got in the way of me fully enjoying it. It was pretty tricky to move around how I wanted to, and having my rotation tied to the camera angle was a little strange.

I really like how it feels walking through the level and trying to rotate the camera to see where the other shapes are and to find the right path of hole for that shape. It almost feels like peeking into a dollhouse.

I think that it would be better if at least some of the shapes don't fall down to the next level, maybe by moving them to a fire escape. because the number of shapes really builds up after the first 2 stages.

It would also be cool with more thematic texture, like having interior props, and maybe having some of the shapes talking, in text like in rpgs, but not pausing the game.

I agree with the other comments that the controls can be more smooth, but I really like the prototype, and there's a lot of interesting ways to take the next step :)

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
